I live in Foley and we have had one for years! Best seafood anywhere hands down. He buys from the locals on the gulf. Gulf shrimp can't be beat! Enjoy it guys and War Eagle!
Will be venturing to Auburn to give it a try this weekend. My wife is from the Gulf Shores area and this brings a part of home for her up to our neck of the woods. AUsome.

I expect them to do well in Auburn, especially on gameday weekends. The Shrimp Basket in Tuscaloosa does at or above $35,000 per weekend during football season, so I have faith that we will make them successful as well.
The restaurant business is a hard business to be successful in. The reason MOST restaurants don't make it is because of crappy food or bad management.
I'm interested to see what kind of business the Wings U being built does, as the one here in Montgomery is a $100, 000 a week store.

There are 20 other seafood places I would eat at in G. Shores before I would eat at the shrimp basket. It's a tourist trap with fair tasting food (the yankees love it), but I guess it will be one of the few games in town at Auburn.
I am in Destin now and plan to eat at the Shrimp Basket here tonight. Great crayfish tails. Excited it has come to Auburn.
I'm really excited about seeing this open in Auburn. There was a pretty good "fast" seafood place on College Street when I was at AU in the 80's but I haven't been able to find one this year, when I started going back for football/to see the child.
Can't wait to get some oysters on my next trip.
Exactly. My grandparents owned several restaurants in their lives and it was dang hard work. My mother always said she'd rather scrub floors for a living before she'd own a restaurant after growing up around that business. A lot of people get into it thinking it will be a "fun" (?) business, and find out fast they are not cut out for it.
Performance stands out like a ton of diamonds. Nonperformance can always be explained away.
Went to the Shrimp Basket tonight... packed and the food is exactly as in Gulf Shores. Very good.
We have tried most places along the Gulf Shores/ Orange Beach area and have never been impressed by most of those so called Good Seafood places ... the Shrimp Basket beats most of them easily and for half the price.
As far as the Developer talk... maybe we should gather the folks that have had food places along that stretch that are not in those locations anymore and ask them... and I really don't think THEY were all sleazy people! Some are still in business just not leasing from the same folks. ...That dude has a very bad Rep in Auburn, anytime the subject comes up at any gatherings or parties its the same ole story... if its not true, that guy should have the newspaper do a story to clear his name... we have heard this stuff for the last 11 years since we moved back to Auburn.
